but now beginning to fall at 30.53 inches of mercury. we showed you the impact meter at the top of the show. we're going show you the bread bread-0-meter now. on a scale of one to ten, a six or a five is a legitimate storm. two or three, plowable, sleddable. then a one on the bread-0- meter, and it's just a nuisance storm. so this will end up just like the impacts meter, a 1. but it is possible to have a legitimate storm or a plowable storm, 3 or 4, if it were to occur on the weekend that might end up being a 4 on the bread-0- meter. how much snow? maybe an inch plus across most of the metro area. one system passes to our north, one system passes to our south. we kind vf leftovers. this is a clipper. it's already breaking out pretty good snow through minneapolis and chicago. we have another storm pulling out of the plains states. that's going to pass to our south. neither storm is going to really pick up and say, hey, i want to be the dominant storm so we're left in between the two storms, so nothing super heavy is going to occur. dry morning commute, light snow in the afternoon
